Quietus

8-6-8-6 syllable count in rhyme abab +
6-6-6 syllable count tercet ccc +
equal syllable couplet using refrain from first line, as last line of the poem
Refrain is also the poem title

I call this format Quietus.

Look forward to contributions!

First things first


first things first, we quieten heart
melding our mind therein
all souls be one, none stand apart
as bliss throbs on our skin

all we do, is be still
shaped upon the anvil
surrendered to Gods will

quenching thirst
first things first

Galloping thought


Galloping thought, self-made prison
Fears and desires seduce
Inducing against soul treason
Free is joyous recluse

Wary of ego glue
Each moment we renew
Early morn pristine dew

Bliss mist not caught
Galloping thought

My brain hurts to do this prose game
It’s like twisting a cork
Inside my brain in time with trains
Where nothing remain s

Weary is the strain
Tormenting my domain
I’ll get over it with pain!

(What’s next??)

@ JustBe … there’s a refrain too as end line, besides first quatrain following an abab end rhyme.

Let’s say, your poem title is ‘my brain hurts’ 3 syllables, as refrain from first line, the concluding lines could be -

thought forms spurt
my brain hurts

Laugh or cry


Laugh or cry, the sun will yet rise
Oh, why does heart contract
Does not each breath usher surprise
Soul eternal, a fact

Let’s then cut to the chase
Choose open arm embrace
Imbibing divine grace

Fear decry
Laugh or cry

Bliss or kiss in the misty twist
Climb or fall, do we stall
Relish the relish on my toast
There is a place to float

So settle in this boat
Gently lay down your coat
Feel the ocean ripples

It’s a dream
Bliss or kiss

(I thought I’d do a practice run see if my runs are right? )

Goody!

Our perfection takes diligence
With focus and practice
As co operation it serves
Our limitless being

We come into our own
We are never alone
Perfection dances one

In unison
Our perfection
